The Shed

The Shed Magazine is a magazine focused on the legion of Kiwis who tinker in their sheds or garages.

That is the byline for a New Zealand magazine dedicated to the ingenuity of shed dwellers. (And a subscription was a Christmas present for me last year).

Growing up in NZ, particularly as an engineering graduate, and we were always fed the line of Kiwi Ingenuity.  Reading through the magazine, and just what the sheddites are doing, with such limited resources and I’m inspired again just how true that statement really is.

The magazine is not specific to woodworking, or metalworking (or anything else particularly – it is as diverse as the shed dwellers that buy it!), and already I have read about rocketry, building a steam engine, building a jet pack, and the Centre for Fine Woodworking.

If nothing else, it is a relief to read about other shed owners who will tackle anything in their sheds, not accepting limitations on tools, materials, space or anything else, and will create, repair, tinker, hoard or just potter about in their realms.
